Women Leaders of Bayview
Free talk and performance led by Valérie Sainte-Agathe and featuring Shelley Bradford-Bell, Heidi Hardin, Christopher Street, Lee Knight, and singers from the San Francisco Girls Chorus’ Bayview Chorus Program

Festival Artist-in-Residence Valérie Sainte-Agathe invites fellow artists and storytellers to the stage to commemorate and celebrate voices of change in San Francisco’s underserved Bayview–Hunters Point neighborhood. Sainte-Agathe leads a discussion with small business owner and civic leader Shelley Bradford-Bell and artist, activist and educator Heidi Hardin about the unsung advocacy work of Bayview women. Teaching artist Christopher Street will join to talk about one of the many legacies of these women – arts and education programs that continue in the Bayview Opera House. The hour-long event will also include Street leading singers from the San Francisco Girls Chorus’ Bayview Chorus Program in a short set, and a sing-along with banjo player Lee Knight to honor what would have been the 100th birthday of folk music legend and social activist Pete Seeger.

Sainte-Agathe is the artistic director of the San Francisco Girls Chorus, which she has prepared and conducted since 2013. A native of Martinique, she has received degrees from Universite Paul Valery in Montpellier, Montpellier Conservatory, and University of Montpellier. Before moving to the Bay Area, she served in various positions with the Orchestre National de Montpellier, Festival de Radio France, Opéra National de Montpellier, Opera Junior, and the Festival Presence, among others.
